Supermoms Against Superbugs Targets Antibiotic Use On Farms As Factor In Drug-Resistant Infections

It only keeps getting worse. Indiscriminate antibiotic use in people and animals used for food is becoming deadlier.

Don't get me wrong, antibiotics save lives, and nobody wants to live without them. The problem is when they are used too much, and especially when they become part of our food supply.

Use free-range (preferably local) organic meat, dairy, and eggs whenever possible. Eat more vegan meals when it isn't.

Think twice every time you or your family member is sick. Consider alternative therapies for repeat infections. If you really do need an antibiotic, follow your doctor's prescription.
